The Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon is Iceland's deepest lake. It is 814 ft. deep and has a surface area of 11 sq. mi.. Joklusarlon Glacier began forming in 1934, when the Breidemerkurjokull glacier started retreating, leaving the lagoon in its path. The lagoon contains dozens of icebergs of various sizes and shapes. It connects to the ocean via a narrow channel that is crossed by the Ring Road. At the black sand beach there are large chunks of ice that appear as "diamonds" in the glistening sun. In the lagoon itself, the icebergs present a wonderful assortment or shapes and colors. Boat tours take visitors around the lagoon, up close to the glacier and around the icebergs. Jokulsarlon sits just south of Vatnajokull, Europe's largest glacier. The Jokulsarlon Lagoon is a must-see for anyone visiting Iceland.
